LOS ANGELES, CA--(Marketwire - Apr 16, 2012) - MMRGlobal, Inc. (OTCBB: MMRF) ("MMR") today announced that it will continue installing MMRPro systems at ambulatory surgery centers ("ASCs") managed by Regent Surgical Health ("Regent"), a leading surgery center management and development company. Last September, MMR installed an MMRPro system at the Peninsula Ambulatory Surgical Center in Bayonne, New Jersey, managed by Regent, demonstrating the effectiveness of the MMRPro electronic document management and imaging system. Based on the success of the Peninsula installation, MMR will install additional MMRPro systems at the Regent-managed ASC in Fort Myers, Florida, as well as two other Regent-managed surgical centers that are slated to open in New Jersey and Illinois later this quarter. Regent currently manages 21 ambulatory surgery centers across the United States.
According to Joyce Thomas, Senior Vice President of Operations for Regent Surgical Health, "MMRPro has proven itself to be a good solution for our document management and imaging needs. Not only is it reliable and secure, but it is also very easy to use. In fact, we will be installing more MMRPro systems in our other facilities." Regent, based in Westchester, Illinois, is known for its expertise in joint venture and ownership model as a buyer, developer and manager of ASCs.
